Former server gets email with workers' information

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Personal information on Ruby Tuesday employees was accidentally sent to a former company worker.

The Maryville-based company told the Knoxville News Sentinel the former employee has assured Ruby Tuesday officials the email was permanently deleted.

The company acknowledged the former worker's address had been copied on an internal communication last week regarding 78 company staff members.

A news report in Connecticut said the information accidentally went to a New Britain resident who had worked as a server at a Ruby Tuesday restaurant until February. The report said the information included employees' names, bank accounts and Social Security numbers.

The company did not say what information was disclosed, but is paying for a year of credit monitoring for affected employees.
